Hey Black Child

By Countee Cullen

Hey Black Child
Do you know who you are?
Who you really are
Do you know you can be?
What you want to be.

If you try to be
What you can be
Hey Black Child!
Do you know where you are going?
Where you’re really going.

Do you know you can learn
What you want to learn
If you try to learn
What you can learn
Hey Black Child!

Do you know you are strong?
I mean really strong
Do you know you can do
What you want to do
If you try to do
What you can do.

Hey Black Child?
Be what you can be
Learn what you must learn
Do what you can do
And tomorrow your nation
Will be what you what it to be
